Arjun Kapoor took to his official Instagram handle on Tuesday and shared a note on the release of his latest film ‘Sardar Ka Grandson’. The film premiered today on Netflix and on this occasion Arjun in his note dedicated the film to his grandmother. 

In his note shared on Tuesday, the 35-year-old actor mentioned that he has been fortunate to be a part of films that “made me tap into my beautiful childhood memories and life experiences. 

The actor maintained Ki and Ka and Sardar Ka Grandson are two of his “most favourite films”. He said while Ki and Ka was for his mother, Sardar Ka Grandson is for his grandmothers. 

Thanking debutant director Kaashvie Nair for giving him a film to cherish forever, Arjun said, “You gave me solid material that connected to me so deeply and instantly because of the story’s uncanny similarity with my grandparents’ lives in various ways.”

Arjun pointed out that the character of Sardar in the film is very similar to his maternal grandmother. “She was actually a riot when you interacted with her and I could see her in Sardar, every step of the way! I was literally living through various phases, emotions and memories, some mine, some theirs,” the actor wrote in his latest note.

Arjun Kapoor’s note read: 

“I have been fortunate enough to get films that have made me tap into my beautiful childhood memories and life experiences.

Whether it was a Ki and Ka, which was for my mother, or now Sardar Ka Grandson for my grandmothers, these are films that have connected to my soul and will forever be my most favourite films.

I am deeply thankful that in Sardar Ka Grandson, I got a chance to be directed by the sensitive and extremely mature Kaashvie Nair, my first female director, who was also helming her first feature film! Kaashvie, you have given me a film to cherish forever and be proud of. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You gave me solid material that connected to me so deeply and instantly because of the story’s uncanny similarity with my grandparents’ lives in various ways.

Moreover, the character of Sardar in the film is very similar to my Nani. She was actually a riot when you interacted with her and I could see her in Sardar, every step of the way! I was literally living through various phases, emotions and memories, some mine, some theirs.

So, for me, I am happy that through this film I have lived a bit of their lives and I hope that I have done all four of them proud through my earnestness with this film.

Sardar Ka Grandson is now available for all to enjoy on Netflix from today and I hope you will be entertained thoroughly. It is a simple movie with a big heart and I hope it moves you in the same way that it has touched me.”

The film features him essaying the role of a devoted grandson who embarks on a difficult journey to fulfil the last wish of his ailing grandmother. 

Sardar Ka Grandson also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, John Abraham, Rakul Preet Singh, Soni Razdan and Kanwaljit Singh. Helmed by debutante Kaashvie Nair, the film is produced by T-Series, Emmay Entertainment and JA Entertainment.
